About Me

I'm 22 years old, just graduated from the College of Charleston with a degree in Communications and Theatre. Instead of start a career or anything like that I decided to run away and see the world instead. I'm a writer and I love to read. I'm also an actor and harbor a dream to go to the moon one day.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To meet new people, learn all I can about the way people live in different parts of the world, and get first hand experiences and memories that I can carry with me forever and use to better myself. I want to know what a typical day is for you, and what it's like to grow up in wherever you're from.


Writing and reading of all sorts, acting, looking at the stars and wondering about the nature of the world, exercising, board games/card games, fun. EATING all the wonderful foods of the world as well.

I get along well with honest and straightforward people who can laugh at themselves, and be themselves.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I went hiking in Colorado and got lost going up a mountain. We kept climbing anyway and got to the top 2 hours later and found a restaurant/gondola overlooking the valley that was closed for the winter.

I'm now on a 6month-1 year solo journey around the world with only a backpack.

Teach, Learn, Share

I want to learn what your food tastes like, what your day is like, how you say please and thank you, anything you want to share. Everybody has a story. The more stories you hear, the more lives you get to live. I can share all mine, and teach you at least one fact about something that you don't know. Probably. Unless you are smarter than me, which is very possible.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I bet I can make you laugh, if only at me. I speak English very well and can cook you a meal and tell you a story. and drink, if you want to do that too. and talk about anything.
